The Cosmopolitan is once again in the news as another lawsuit has been filed against the Vegas strip casino hotel, this time by O.J. Simpson who has claimed that casino’s employees defamed him by telling celebrity news site TMZ he was ordered off the property in 2017 for being drunk, disruptive and unruly.
In the lawsuit, and as reported by the Associate Press, the former football star denies in the lawsuit filed Thursday against the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas that he was belligerent, broke glass or damaged property.
However, the complaint does acknowledge that Simpson was notified of being banned from the property after he spent several hours at a steakhouse and a lounge.
Simpson has previously been convicted for armed robbery and assault at a Las Vegas hotel in 2007. He is currently on parole after serving nine years in prison.
Earlier in the week, the Cosmopolitan sued Sharks forward Evander Kane for $500,000.
According to the court documents obtained by the media outlets, the casino operator filed a lawsuit against Kane as he failed to pay back gambling markers, which are lines of credit that allow high-level gambling patrons easy access to large sums of cash.
According to the lawsuit, around April 15, Kane got himself about eight markers between $20,000 and $100,000. The casino alleged that the patron has yet not paid even a single one of those and therefore the non-payment amounts to a breach of contract.
